Re: TiVo become two?
Interesting! I didn't know TiVo had a good interface. I have heard about the others being really really bad... I think you're right about YouTube. The interface will be very familiar to regular YouTube users.

Re: TiVo become two?
@mhhf1ve  yes you could be right as ad's do create and bring large revenue... and Co. do not like to leave money on the table...

Re: TiVo become two?
I may be wrong, but from the TiVo press release, I'm guessing that the company is headed towards trying to squeeze more money out of its platform-- and I wouldn't be surprised if that meant its famously simple user interface gets more cluttered with ads and other annoying items.

Re: TiVo become two?
> "TiVo’s Product business is at an exciting time in its transformation, particularly with several new product and business model launches later this year"

I wonder what new business models TiVo is planning for its platform -- it sounds a bit like they're going to start adding more ads and ad targeting -- which is a bit of the opposite of what users probably want their TiVo far -- skipping ads! I'm guessing Apple TV is going to eat TiVo's lunch and dinner....

Re: TiVo become two?
I was always amazed at how TiVo managed to keep its user interface so clean and nice while cableco DVRs cluttered theirs up with all kinds of confusing bells and whistles. But I'm guessing that YoutubeTV has a decent enough interface that most YouTube viewers are accustomed to already. And I'm not so sure TiVo will be able to compete at YouTube's level.

Re: TiVo become two?
If they would've been first to offer a cloud DVR...

I agree that joining the market now would be tough. I believe Netflix still runs on Amazon services so the storage issue could maybe work ok.

User interface will make the difference these days. There are plenty of interfaces that aren't so great to use. I've never used TiVo so I can't say if they're winning on that front. ;)

You don't know who's going to win for sure.... but if I had to bet on Disney vs Tivo, I'd bet on Disney winning!

Re: TiVo become two?
I'm not sure if Roku's strategy is that much better than TiVo.. but I think Roku is starting to license content and create its own "channel" for streaming video. Has Netflix considered doing this, too? I haven't followed TiVo's content strategy...
